If you don`t like Downunder`s Video Solution...

Easy enough to make a Panorama ! Hopefully your camera will already come with this option. Or take a number of photos (3?) and let a Photo Editing program sort them out. GIMP is free !

Personally I usually use good old MS-Paint for basic Editing like this. It`s manual, with no cool tools, but still gets the job done :)

A pano will do the job. There are quite are phone apps freely available for the Android, although I have no idea for the apple.

Hmm...in fact, I just checked my recently purchased Droid. Apparently there's one built into the camera functions. (I had one I had upgraded to purchased-mode for my old droid but it died last August)

You could always use a video.

Zoom in on the details, show the whole thing from a bit of distance to fit in the picture and if required place a measuring tape in the picture as a reference.

For Android and Apple you also get software to make panorama pictures, simply take a few and they will be stitched together and lens distortion cerrected.

Some good SLR cameras also offer this function in the menu settings.

If you can't manage wide-angle, take the best you can, then crop off the empty space.

A fish eye lens or lots of light with a fast lens stopped down. Both will give a focused long board from edge to edge...
